Block Dorsey, the electric car giant and founder of Twitter, will mine Bitcoin together using solar energy.
Because even though you can no longer buy Tesla with bitcoin as a payment method, it seems as if Tesla is not done with cryptocurrency.
The collaboration between Tesla, Block and crypto company Blockstream, in Texas, will take place on a solar-powered battery factory, according to Bloomberg.
